- Potting Soil
Louis Jadot works closely with Matthew Clark, reserving some of their top wines and holding them in cellars in Beaune, giving the opportunity to enjoy Burgundy at its optimum maturity. From vineyard to bottle, sustainability is core. They've banned synthetic products on their soils applying tradition and encouraging vines to grow their roots to mine the soil’s minerality. Some of their vineyards have been managed biodynamically and investments made in an environmentally sympathetic way.
Following on from a fantastic vintage the year before, French vineyards endured a mixed bag of weather conditions in the early part of the growing season followed by a long, hot summer which produced some memorable wines, even to rival to the excellence of the previous year.Explore France
